I always thought it to be about social darwinism. Though in some cases I believe it simply refers to the status quo much like the phrase "that's the law of the land" i.e that is just the way things are. The two different phrasings you use really make a difference in that regard. While "Jungle Law" sounds much more inclined to social darwinism, "the law of the jungle" is much more like my second example.
